Hyvia will supply hydrogen to Hype’s filling stations in and around Paris, with the hydrogen produced at Hyvia’s plant in Flins, west of Paris, where the company also assembles its hydrogen refueling stations. As part of the partnership, Hyvia will provide two new refueling stations for the Hype network, with the first site located in Buc and scheduled to begin operations this summer.

Nicolas Champetier, CEO of Hyvia, stated, “Supply of decarbonized hydrogen, hydrogen stations and vans, financing solution: we are accelerating the deployment of hydrogen mobility thanks to this strategic partnership with HYPE, a major player in the H2 sector, zero-emission solutions and hydrogen taxis.”
